Beachviews Not Bombs: CE Talk on June 28 in Hong Kong

While Trump is pitching Kim Jong Un on beachview condos in Wonsan, frontier entrepreneurs in North Korea have been launching startups in one of the world’s most challenging markets. Choson Exchange has been teaching startup skills in the DPRK for more than half a decade. Join us in Hong Kong for talk on the state of business and startup culture in the DPRK, and whether North Koreans are ready to face the global market.

Trump Meets Kim in Singapore

President Donald Trump will meet Marshal Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12. We are looking forward to hosting a viewing party of this event on June 12 and a discussion of North Korea's economic policies and evolution over the last decade of our work prior to the date. We hope both sides manage to compromise to create a breakthrough in their relations. We also salute Moon Jae In's skillful diplomacy in creating this moment.
